Brianna Alonso says Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents refused to show her a warrant when they broke into her home in National City, California, on May 8.
Brianna told KGVT that says her husband, Alberto Alonso-Hernandez, was going to work when he saw ICE agents and ran back in the house.
Brianna said ICE agents never showed a warrant before breaking down their front door. One ICE agent can be heard on a video telling Brianna that she watches too many TV shows.
Brianna added that ICE agents finally presented a warrant after Alberto was taken into custody.
An ICE spokesperson claims that Alonso-Hernandez is wanted for illegally re-entering the country 16 times since 2013 and for a domestic violence conviction in 2014.
Brianna said Alberto was deported twice before being arrested, and that he was brought to the U.S> when he was `13 by his parents, which may make him a DREAMer.
A criminal attorney told KGTV that law enforcement is allowed to use a “no-knock” rule, and not show a criminal arrest warrant first if they have probable cause.
